Coffee Cupcake with Chocolate Coffee Ganache


This cupcake taste soo good, it is moist, airy, not too sweet; suits well with the chocolate coffee ganache frosting.

As for the cupcake, I’m using recipe from Elise Strachan, my cupcake addiction with the addition of 2 tbs instant coffee powder dilute into the water. The recipe yields 12 cupcakes.

As for the frosting, i use half recipe of my chocolate buttercream and half  coffee ganache frosting, mix them together. See my previous posting for the recipe

Topped with your favorite chocolate candy

Cappuccino Cupcake


I use cappuccino cupcake recipe from tatyana everyday food and omit the kahlua. It taste nice however i found the te xture was dense. Not sure what i did wrong.

Therefore i prefer using chocolate cupcake recipe from my cupcake addiction. They’re super moist

My coffee ganache frosting

I use 1:1 ratio of chocolate & cream. It was too liquid, I should’ve used 2:1 ratio. Therefore i mixed this again with 1/2 cup of chocolate buttercream (recipe in my previous post), it was more sturdy and the taste was great.

300 gr compound chocolate
100gr whippy haan + 200gr water, add 2-3 tbs instant coffee to this water. Espresso would be nice to give strong coffee taste
2 tbs unsalted butter, room temp

Once it is cool down, let it sit for 3-4 hours and then whip.

Enough to frost 12-18 cupcakes

Sometimes i use half of ganache and mix with buttercream frosting. It taste amazing as well
